New Year's Resolutions!

I am crazy late in posting my resolutions, but at least I am writing these before the new year starts!!! I'm linking up today with Tammy and Mor. :)
  • Drink more water!! My boyfriend's mom got me a sweet water bottle for Christmas (which is just what I wanted). I hope it encourages me to drink a lot of water.
  • Go to more museums!! I love museums. Now that Matt works at one, we can go to lots of museums in the city for free!!!
  • Go on some kind of trip. I want to go places in my life. Maybe a summer vacay?
  • Assess my students to determine their reading levels. My reading program is a one-size-fits-all situation with no leveled books and very few assessments. I can get around this because I have access to Reading A-Z and a sizable leveled library that I am continually working on. My brother wants me to add that I will actually teach the kids to read...... not just figure out their levels......
  • Keep my desk cleaned. This is a real problem for me!! I just throw things on my desk throughout the day and then I lose things. :(
  • Revamp my math work stations. The kids love this time of day but it is not a well-oiled machine by any means. When we get back to school, I want to make an expectations anchor chart (which I never made it the first place....) and change out the stations to keep the kids excited and engaged.
  • Grade and return work in a timely fashion!!
  • Start creating my own freebies to share! My students and I have benefited from so many kind and giving teacher bloggers and I want to give back. I only have two sets of clip art though... I think that is an issue.
Ay caramba, I have a lot of professional resolutions!!! But I am a first year teacher, so I think it is okay if I have a lot to improve on still. :)


  1. As I was reading your resolutions I remembered the giant stack of papers waiting for me to grade by Monday. Uggggghhhhh :)
    Great resolutions!

  2. I am SO with you on wanting a clean desk. I lose so many things! And what's the point of a desk calendar if you can't see it? Ugh!

  3. I also set a goal of keeping my desk clear (well, at least clearer), and KNOW I should attack the stacks of marking more ... maybe doing the latter will help me with the former ... ???

  4. Thank you so much for linking up! My desk is my catch all too. Organization is a big one for me in 2012.
